Softpedia was informed today, February 8, 2017, by NethServer Community Manager Alessio Fattorini about the general availability of the NethServer 7 Linux-based operating system.

Based on CentOS 7.3, NethServer 7 launches with the ability for the Linux server OS to act as a Samba 4 Active Directory controller, replacing a Microsoft Active Directory domain controller. This is possible by implementing support for native Microsoft Windows management tools like AD PowerShell and RSAT.

Fedora: The Latest

  • Major update to Nagios in Fedora Rawhide and EPEL-7 [moving to 4.2.4]
  • Major update to Fedora/EPEL moving to nrpe-3.0.1
  • openQA and Autocloud result submission to ResultsDB

    One of the big topics at Devconf and around the RH offices was the ongoing effort to modernize both Fedora and RHEL’s overall build processes to be more flexible and involve a lot more testing (or, as some people may have put it, “CI CI CI”). A lot of folks wearing a lot of hats are involved in different bits of this effort, but one thing that seems to stay constant is that ResultsDB will play a significant role.

    ResultsDB started life as the result storage engine for AutoQA, and the concept and name was preserved as AutoQA was replaced by Taskotron. Its current version, however, is designed to be a scalable, capable and generic store for test results from any test system, not just Taskotron. Up until last week, though, we’d never quite got around to hooking up any other systems to it to demonstrate this.

  • Ambassadors LATAM: Year in Review

    Throughout 2016, the Fedora community in Latin America was active promoting Fedora in local events and showing the Fedora Project objectives and foundations to possible new contributors and helping them find their way into different subprojects, as part of the global Fedora community. We had a presence in all relevant events in Latin America with talks, workshops and stands promoting ours four foundations to the world.

  • The Fedora Diversity FAD

    DevConf.cz featured many great talks and a fantastic hallway track. It also hosted the Fedora Activity Day for the Fedora Diversity team. The FAD spanned three days of working on ways we can learn more about our community, encourage greater diversity and more. This team has a high level of overlap with Marketing, CommOps, and the Magazine so we didn’t restrict ourselves to thinking about just diversity issues. More will be forthcoming as the team does its final outbound reporting, but I wanted to share some of my observations as a someone privileged to get to work with this amazing group of people.

  • Waterford boost as Red Hat announces 60 jobs in €12.7m investment

    Open source specialist Red Hat is pumping €12.7m into its Waterford offices, aiming to offer 60 new roles over the next three years.

    Red Hat’s global hub for research and development in Waterford is due an upgrade, after multimillion-euro plans emerged from the US company.

  • Discovering Open Source at Red Hat

    For example, Fedora is an upstream project for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. OpenStack is an upstream project for RDO. Did you know that Red Hat is the second biggest contributor to Docker and Kubernetes? Both are upstream projects for products offered to Red Hat customers. When Red Hat acquires a company, they open source the source code. Right now I'm working with two different teams in Red Hat to see how we can best help them open source their products and create communities around them. They are facing all the same questions about open sourcing that any product would. What license should they use? How do they replace non open source dependencies? Should they open all the existing known bug reports? What if they contain proprietary customer data? Lots of fun questions.

  • Red Hat's cloud application platforms boost growth

    Harvey said these emerging technologies enable customers to be agile and to change their business models to digitally transform globally and in Sub-Saharan Africa. Although traditional portfolios like Linux are growing faster than other operating system environments, it is the next generation technology like cloud application platforms that are driving the demand, he adds.

    "The industry is telling us that Linux is growing by 11 - 12% year on year while the Red Hat Linux market is growing at about 18 - 19% globally. The growth spurt has allowed the company to invest in Africa……opening offices in SA and looking at entering other markets.

    With the Linux benchmarks at Phoronix there is a wide-range of Linux distributions (as well as BSDs, macOS, and the occasional Solaris and Windows) tested, but the operating system I end up running on my most-important production system is still Fedora Workstation. Recently I was interviewed by Fedora Magazine about my thoughts on the Red Hat backed distribution and more.

The kernel packages of CloudLinux 7 have been updated to version 3.10.0-427.36.1.lve1.4.37, and they are now available for installation directly from the updates-testing repository. Since kernel version 3.10.0-427.36.1.lve1.4.35, CloudLinux's team managed to backport a fix for a known "Kernel panic" issue.

The new updated CloudLinux 7 kernel build also attempts to implement the ability to ignore root-owned links when checking symlink ownership. Therefore, it is recommended that you update your systems to kernel version 3.10.0-427.36.1.lve1.4.37 as soon as possible.

Michael Larabel: How Do You Fedora?

Red Hat
Interviews

Michael Larabel is an entrepreneur, software engineer and technology analyst. Larabel founded Phoronix Media in 2004. Phoronix is the leading destination for Linux hardware reviews and enthusiast-oriented Linux news. Michael also develops an automated open source benchmarking suite named the Phoronix Test Suite. The results from the suite are published on OpenBenchmarking.org.

Michael was also the lead developer involved in a startup that was building a home monitoring and communication device to help those with neurodegenerative conditions and the elderly. That startup stalled due to burdensome regulations in the US around commercial health related devices. The device leveraged Linux and Larabel hopes to bring the project back to life one day. “I hope one day to find the time to clean-up and improve the code as it could be an interesting open-source project.”

Security Leftovers

  • How To Improve The Linux System’s Security Using Firejail
    As you already know, Linux kernel is secure by default. But, it doesn’t mean that the softwares on the Linux system are completely secure. Say for example, there is a possibility that any add-ons on your web browser may cause some serious security issues. While doing financial transactions over internet, some key logger may be active in browser which you are not aware of. Even though, we can’t completely give the bullet-proof security to our Linux box, we still can add an extra pinch of security using an application called Firejail. It is a security utility which can sandbox any such application and let it to run in a controlled environment. To put this simply, Firejail is a SUID (Set owner User ID up on execution) program that reduces the risk of security breaches by restricting the running environment of untrusted applications.

Containers vs. Zones vs. Jails vs. VMs

  • Setting the Record Straight: containers vs. Zones vs. Jails vs. VMs
    I’m tired of having the same conversation over and over again with people so I figured I would put it into a blog post. Many people ask me if I have tried or what I think of Solaris Zones / BSD Jails. The answer is simply: I have tried them and I definitely like them. The conversation then heads towards them telling me how Zones and Jails are far superior to containers and that I should basically just give up with Linux containers and use VMs. Which to be honest is a bit forward to someone who has spent a large portion of her career working with containers and trying to make containers more secure. Here is what I tell them:
  • [Old] Hadoop Has Failed Us, Tech Experts Say

    The Hadoop community has so far failed to account for the poor performance and high complexity of Hadoop, Johnson says. “The Hadoop ecosystem is still basically in the hands of a small number of experts,” he says. “If you have that power and you’ve learned know how to use these tools and you’re programmer, then this thing is super powerful. But there aren’t a lot of those people. I’ve read all these things how we need another million data scientists in the world, which I think means our tools aren’t very good.”
